Headaches and Summer Heat

The unexpected heat waves of summer are actually more of a pain than we thought. A recent study has found that there is a definite link between unexpected rises of temperature and headaches. Even the “warm” days of winter can trigger migraines.

Researchers at Harvard University published their on March 10th this year in the Issue of Neurology. Kenneth J. Mukamal M.D, led the study and concluded that temperature is a strong trigger of headaches however the key is the difference in temperature compared to an average day therefore sudden temperature highs are the leading cause.

It was Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess hospital records between 2000 and 2007 revealed this relationship between heat and migraines. The records of 7,000 visitors to the ER showed that if the temperature rose at least 9 degrees more than anticipated, the number of visitors with migraines in the ER rose 7.5%.

So before you face a heat wave, keep in mind that the pool party weather could be the trigger of a severe headache or migraine. Remember to drink lots of water to keep yourself hydrated throughout the summer months!

Ways To Cool Down Without Air Conditioning


The summer certainly has kicked into full gear with the heat reaching almost unbearable heights. For many of us there is no air conditioning installed in our houses or apartments, or not any proper A/C at least. However, there is some good news for those that don’t have air conditioning. There are still ways to cool down during these long, dry, hot summer days.

Water, Water, Water. Use it- Soak a t-shirt that you have then wring it out. Go outside and sit in a chair, preferably one that is like a lawn chair and will allow air to pass through it. This will help cool you down. However, use lukewarm water because it may become too cold if freezing water is used.

Water, Water, Water. Drink it!- When it gets hot we need water to keep our bodies hydrated. Also a cool glass of water will help you cool down.

Ice, Ice, Baby- There are two things that I like to do that involve ice. The first is to grab an ice cube or two and hold it to my wrists and neck, where you can feel a pulse, and this normally cools me down pretty fast. The second thing I like to do is to freeze 2 or 3 jugs of water. Then place a towel or something that will catch water under them. Position a fan behind the now frozen jugs and just let the fan blow air at you. I call this the poor-mans air conditioning. The fan blows air while the ice jugs cool the air.

Sweat baby, sweat- Sweating actually cools you off by taking some of the heat away with the water vapor. However, I would only recommend when you are at home, not very many people enjoy being near someone who is really sweaty and smells like BO, especially at work.

Dress appropriately- This is one of those obvious things that almost every does anyway. If you’re going out try to wear light colored shorts and a t-shirt. If you’re alone at home, go commando. Being naked is an excellent way to cool off, and it’s also extremely comfortable. However, if you live with other people, wearing your underwear (ie- boxers) is an alternative.
